Good food selections at a reasonable price. The wood fired chicken is excellent. Service is fast. Best location is to the left of entrance and the bar area.

I first visited a Grizzly's years ago in Brainerd. They set the standards high... This Grizzly's is just as good. I love the selection of food, their burgers are great, good options for drinks, and it has a very inviting environment. The staff are friendly and accurate.

Five of us there for lunch. We liked our food except the potato-ham-cheese soup was quite salty and couldn't be finished. Service was pretty good. There was a mixup on a salad but the server made amends. Burgers were quite good. There's a large menu with smoked food.

the staff seems to be much more interested in themselves then providing service. Food average at best.

I have never been so disappointed. We purchased two Apple pecan salad still go. Please see the photo below. The letters didn't even cover the bottom of the carry out container. Maybe I got three groups in the salad and a few green apple slices.

Recently my fiance, and I took my future mother in law to Grizzlys for lunch. The first thing you notice on entering is an odd smell. It seems to be some kind of industrial cleaner. It's reminiscent of a gas station bathroom. We were seated and ordered. Both my fiance and his mother had steak that they said was chewy.... More

The beef brisket and patty melt sandwiches were very good but the BBQ nachos were disappointing. They consisted of BBQ flavored potato chips topped with BBQ sauce and little else. The service was good and friendly however.

This is my second time to this restaurant, as I do not live in Mankato, but do make trips there every few months. Amazing doesn't seem to be enough to say about this place. Our server was well versed on the menu, as well as upcoming changes to the menu for ideas of things to try on return visits. Wow!!!... More
